, we can't cut into our seed core. we can't cut into things that help america grow and create jobs like education or cancer research or food safety, things like that. and i think what you're finding, chuck, is you're going to find a turning point here. now that every democrat has rejected hr-1 and clearly doesn't have the votes to pass the senate, the ball shifts to speaker boehner. we've put some cuts on the table. we're willing to put more. but they have not said a single place where they would move off hr-1 and now it can't pass. so actually the action in the next week or two will occur behind-the-scenes. speaker boehner will have to meet with this e78s freshman republicans. some said they won't bouj. if he won't he may have to make a coalition with the democrats in the house. hr-1 can't pass. we're willing to be reasonable and meet in the middle as long as it doesn't cut the kinds of things that help america grow. the american people gave us two missions cut unnecessary programs but grow the economy and create jobs. we think we can do both. hr-1 only focus one. >> we're in our thir

think about it, the journeys of the united states of america and brazil began in similar ways. our lands are rich with god's creation, home to ancient and indigenous peoples. from overseas, the americas were discovered by men who sought a new word and settled by pioneers who pushed westward. we game colonies claimed by distant crowns, but soon declared our independence. we then welcomed waves of immigrants to our shores and eventually after a long struggle we cleansed the scene of slavery from our land. the united states was the first mags nation to recognize brazil's independence and set up a diplomatic outpost in this country. the first head of state to visit the united states was the leader of brazil. in the second world war, our brave men and women fought side by side for freedom. and after the war, both of our nations struggled to achieve the full blessings of liberty. on the streets of the united states, men and women marched and bled and some died so that every citizen could enjoy the same freedoms and opportunities no matter what you look like, no matter where you came from. in b

we build an energy grid in america that we move to solar thermal, other things i think the marketplace will make that decision for us. >> senator sessions, after the gulf oil spill, after the nuclear emergency in japan, do you think the president is capable of leading a bipartisan effort to really make energy policy a priority? and to lead to some change? >> he has to do that. he has not done that. the energy department seems to be putting out more road blocks on american energy production than actually leading in the way to produce more energy. we need more clean american energy. that is a driving force for this country right now. we're not seeing that leadership. we've got gulf oil production blocked basically by not get geting permits, only two have been made since the oil spill. and we need to get moving. we simply cannot afford not to. >> i'm going to have to make that the last word. senators, thank you all very much. >>> coming up -- after almost a decade of war, the u.s. military finds itself stretched thinner by yet another conflict in the middle east. what igni

, this week in south america, i asked the president point-blank, what is the national security interest of the u.s. in libya? and he cited egypt, tunisia, unrest in the region. the president is going to have to put it in that context. what's so fascinating about his rhetoric, though, is while he's saying the u.s. will take this military, we need to do this, you can see the subtext clearly ca just, our cause is righteous, we'll see it through to the end. instead you hear him saying, we'll be in and out. it's limited in duration. we won't be the ones enforcing the no-fly zone. won't be our ships enforcing the arms embargo. you see that reluctance shot through his rhetoric. >> tom ricks, we began the discussion this morning, richard engel reporting on the rebel, they're getting closer to tripoli. then what that's when we leave? if gadhafi stays, can we really say this is mission accomplished? >> i think they'll say we can. all obama is saying is give war a chance. not all war. all we did was kick the door down, let the brits and french and others do it. and i think his notion is we're goin
